Especially having difficulty with the translation of "of your choice". Would you say "deseado"? Is there a better way to say "of your choice"?

Seleccione el directorio de datos que desee.
Explanation:
Elija el directorio de datos que quiera.

Watch out with directorio, it's considered old terminology... It's more common to see folder=carpeta, in which case it would be: seleccione la carpeta de datos que desee.
